The Record Is Tied

In his first at bat, a nice single to a standing ovation at home at Safeo field. In front of Sisler's daughter and grandsons.

And for those of you who are thinking "well, he had more games than Sisler did!" I say, yeah, and he also had to face modern pitching... including relief pitching, which Sisler never did. Different times, different hitters, but don't scoff at Ichiro's accomplishment in breaking this record.
